Just installed Win7 SP1 and I get the same virus warning.
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
C:\Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727_32\Temp\ZAP428B.tmp\mscorlib.dll
Anyone know if this is real or a false positive for sure?
Updated virus definitions and program then rebooted. That did not resolve the issue.
Ran CCleaner, Cleaned all temp files and cleaned registry and it stopped.

I just registered to add that I'm having the same problem. I hope they fix this soon, and REALLY hope windows patch service hasn't been breached and sending out malware in their updates! btw full legal non-pirated win7 home premium 64 fresh install. only other software on it is ms office 2010 (licensed), avast free and printer drivers.

Interestingly I just got Avast to run a scan on the c:\windows\microsoft.net\ folder and it found no viruses.

Seems like doing a Program update worked!! Been 15mins without a notice. BTW I could do without the Avast gadget, the sys tray icon does a good enough job of letting me know if I'm secure or not.

I did another program update about 10mins ago and it seems to have cleared up the problem.

I reported it as a false positive at the same time it stopped showing up so either the definitions update fixed it, or avast is now ignoring it.

Essexboy, I too have the exact same problem following a Windows 7 64 Bit update to SP1.  How can I upload a false positive from the chest other than restoring?  If I choose this option, Avast will keep on picking this file up as a Trojan.

I got the same annoying problem just after installing Service Pack 1 from Microsoft. I do not know what to do....The warning keeps appearing every few seconds.

I think if you manually update your virus definitions to the latest version 110301-2 it supposedly fixes the problem.
